Analyst Report

This ETF is one of several products that offers exposure to debt of emerging markets issuers, an asset class that is often overlooked by U.S.-based investors but that has the potential to deliver attractive yields and dollar diversification. Emerging market debt generally offers higher interest rates than debt of U.S. issuers, making this fund potentially appealing to those looking to boost the amount of current income derived from their portfolios. LEMB can be used to complement positions in U.S. debt generally achieved through funds such as AGG or BND, allowing investors to diversify their debt holdings geographically. It should be noted that the Emerging Markets Bonds ETFdb Category includes both products that invest in dollar denominated debt securities and those that invest in bonds denominated in the local currency of the issuer. LEMB falls into the latter category; because the debt is issued in emerging markets currencies, this product includes exchange rate risk. A strengthening dollar will hurt LEMB's returns, while a decline in the greenback will help this fund; those looking for dollar diversification can achieve it through LEMB (or through funds such as ELD or EMLC). Those looking to avoid fluctuations caused by changes in the exchange rate might prefer EMB, which holds dollar-denominated debt. Alternative ETFs offering similar exposure include the actively-managed ELD and EMLC from Van Eck; both of those products are a bit cheaper than this fund.
